    That's not necessarily true. In order for a barn to have proper ventilation, you have to consider the quantity and location of the openings to let the outdoor air in. In many bank barns or new...

    The link on EN mainly directs you to this article from Equus Magazine, which I believe is the link the OP is referring too.

    What bothers me the most is not that they didn't give the award to AP, but the way they were so condescending to him and his fans. Writing a fake article in which AP 'congratulates' Serena for...

    So I bought my Devoucoux Chiberta in 2008 and Devoucoux Mendia in 2010. Never had an independent saddle fitter evaluate their fit. My horse has had intermittent back pain, but also has kissing...

    If having them focus on a name change keeps them away from some of the other preposterous proposed ideas (like flag penalties), then I say have at it. At least it doesn't change the way the sport is...

    And it doesn't matter how much you 'save his legs' if he never gets qualified. This applies to not only him, but horses like Shamwari and Manoir de Carneville.

    For 2015, Pavarotti did not complete a single Advanced or 3* event. Jessica withdrew him from Rolex and Fair Hill after dressage, and fell off him on cross country at Plantation Field. She did state...

    CanterandCandor, these quotes are from the Eventing Connect article, not the Eventing Nation article. They are two separate organizations with no affiliation to one another.

    Wide hands is a very, very common technique for jumping skinnies and wedges. The feeling of wide hands sort of 'funnels' the horse into the fence. And just like anything, hands can be soft or strong...

    I stand corrected, he did complete in 2014. I was definitely not thinking when I wrote that, Cambalda also completed this year.

    I agree in a big part with you, but I also want to note that the grant amount to travel to Le Lion decreases significantly if the grant recipient not a U.S. bred horse. At least in that way, they are...
